Breast Lift

Dr. Hilton Becker is recognized as a world expert in breast lift surgery. He has published several articles as well as written chapters in plastic surgery textbooks on breast lift surgery.

Dr. Becker is the pioneer of the “Scarless” breast lift procedure also known as the Sub–areolar mastopexy, which is an improved variation of the Circum-areolar mastopexy. In this procedure an incision is made around the areola. By using buried tension releasing sutures scarring is minimized. He has published two articles on the subject.

The ‘Scarless’ Breast Lift

Dr. Becker has developed a new technique called the Sub-Areola Mastopexy (“scarless breast lift”). This technique enables a breast lift to be performed with virtually no scarring. The sub-areola Mastopexy also results in less tension at the suture site, so the scars are often barely noticeable. Dr. Becker has recently improved this technique by inserting an “internal Bra” this is a surgical mesh commonly used in many other areas of the body. The “bra “ increases the amount of internal lifting without any additional scarring.

As the pioneer of the “Scarless Breast Lift “ technique, Dr. Becker serves as an instructor to other doctors around the world. He has also written numerous articles in medical journals and textbooks on this topic.

Dr. Becker has been invited by his colleagues around the world to lecture and teach his techniques in breast lift surgery. He has performed thousands of breast procedures over his 25 year experience.

The breast lift procedure may be performed with Dr. Becker’s adjustable breast implants or the New Natural Profile – Cohesive Silicone Gel Implants. Enhanced lift and projection is achieved with an internal mesh bra that Dr. Becker has developed.

Mastopexy (Breast Lift)

Traditional Mastopexy (anchor incision)

One of the major concerns of a patient undergoing breast lift surgery is the resultant scars. Traditionally, breast lift surgery was performed using an anchor incision, which included a scar around the areola, a vertical scar and a horizontal scar at the bottom of the breast.

Vertical Mastopexy

Recently, the vertical mastopexy has come into vogue. With this procedure, the horizontal scar under the breast is eliminated, leaving only a vertical scar.

The Doughnut Mastopexy

The doughnut mastopexy eliminates both the vertical and horizontal scars; leaving the circular scar around the areola. Unfortunately with this technique, the scar around the areola can become stretched and visible. Puckering of the skin around the scar can also be problematic.

Sub-areola Mastopexy (“Invisible scar” breast lift)

Dr. Becker has developed a new technique called the sub-areola mastopexy. This technique enables a breast lift to be performed with virtually no scarring. The sub-areola mastopexy also results in less tension at the suture site. The scars are often barely noticeable.

Pioneer in the field

Dr. Becker is the pioneer of the sub-areola mastopexy technique. He serves as an instructor and teaches these techniques to other doctors around the United States and the world. Dr. Becker has also written numerous articles and plastic surgery textbook chapters on this topic, including:

  1. The dermal overlap sub areola mastopexy: A preliminary report. Aesthetic Surgery, September/October 2001.
  2. The correction of breast ptosis with the expander mammary prosthesis. Annals of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 24, No. 6, June 1990.
